While you're at it, please make sure cgiemail doesn't accept templates
when there is no /etc/cgiemail.conf. As it is, the vulnerability is
still open between unpacking and configuration.
Also, I think cgiemail.pod lacks the structure and the style of a man
page, and makes us look really lazy. :-) Bug#6302, the reason it was
written, was submitted back when the binaries were in /usr/bin; since
the user doesn't invoke them directly, we can do without it.
BTW, the postrm should remove /etc/cgiemail.conf.
